Bollywood actor Prachi Desai says she turned down an offer to feature in an advertisement for a Pakistani beauty brand, considering the strained ties between India and Pakistan.

"As of now, I am not taking up any endorsement deals in Pakistan and yes I have turned down the offer since I feel it is not the right time." Prachi said in a statement.

According to a source close, Prachi was approached by a 'Pakistani beauty brand to endorse one of its products'.

"But the actor politely turned it down. She has done this keeping in mind the relations India has with our neighbors at this time. She thought it would be inappropriate for her to be signing up for such a thing right now." the source added.

The dust between India and Pakistan has clearly not settled. After SRK negotiated Mahira's position in Raees promotion, Prachi has refused a Pakistan project.
